Why Mark Picked the Book (source: Mark's Facebook Page)
This book is a big history narrative of human civilization -- from how we developed from hunter-gatherers early on to how we organize our society and economy today.

From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”
One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?
